Boemo Diale


Boemo Diale, born 2000 is a Johannesburg based multidisciplinary artist.. She is currently studying Film and Television at the University of Witwatersrand. She grew up pervading different racial structures in Rustenburg, Mafikeng and the suburbs of Johannesburg, South Africa. A theme present in her works involve the inner workings of her child self that existed in liminal spaces between rural and urban. Her works reflect nuances of gender, race, culture, identity, mental health and spirituality. The works are often playful, cathartic, and child- like reflections of the inner workings of her internal world. Many of her works also include references to traditional clay pot making, permaculture, African symbols and scarification. Diale has had three solo presentations; Permaculture (2021) with Kalashnikovv Gallery (JHB), The Pink Room (2021) at P72 Projects (JHB) and most recently, No Matter How Far I Run (2023) with Kalashnikovv Gallery. She has participated in many group shows in Johannesburg and exhibited at both Turbine Art Fair (2021, 2022) and FNB ART JOBURG (2022).
